We thoroughly enjoyed our experience last night. It was a Birthday dinner for our 7 year old granddaughter who has to be both gluten-free and diary free. Your food is always amazing and my husband and I enjoyed our pasta immensely. Our waitress went above and beyond in checking the binder for the ingredients in different items for our granddaughter. I cannot remember her name but we were at table #0234 and she was friendly and helpful throughout our time there. We will definitely be back with family again

Went there for a birthday dinner and the waitress we had was amazing once we were seated. It took longer to be seated than they told us, but after that, it was a great experience!

Server pleasant and doing her best but probably lacking experience and location awkward for her: so no condiments, parmesan,...
Husband's pasta seemed overcooked like it was standing for quite a while as did my meatballs. Didn't feel Fresh as it usually does.
Loud drill down the street thankfully stopped
Device to process payment horrible. Could not see and our young server could also barely make out the $$ amounts. Not designed for outdoors.
Will allow for disruptive effects of the pandemic and be back but indoors. Hopefully, losing the best experienced servers will force management to finally better realize their worth

We love the food at East Side Mario's. My son had his Italian wedding soup and his usual spaghettini & meatballs which he gobbled up. My husband and I shared the spaghettini primavera with goat cheese and added shrimp. It was very yummy. We sat outside and there was a beautiful breeze which was perfect for a warmer day. Our server was very pleasant, quick and very helpful.

Pasta was tough and undercooked for both our main courses. When informed to the server, the response was ' oh ok..as long as no one goes hungry'.
Not a place I would recommend as quality of the cooking was under par for an Italian restaurant and for the price of the meals.

The device at East Sides is always amazing! They’re really good at checking up on you and bringing you things (like bread!) without feeling like you’re smothered. Food is also such a classic, and you definitely have to try the Stone Fruit Sangria!

The food was fantastic but there was only 1 server for everyone so it was slow for eating in. It was nice to be back though after not eating here for a year due to the pandemic. Hoping we get to come more often in the future

We had a booth - the bench seats were fixed so couldn't be moved back, and they were much too close to the table on both sides to sit comfortably.

We were there for our son’s 16th birthday.
Our server was absolutely fantastic! He was extremely attentive, personable, and made us feel very welcome. We were very impressed by his great service (he was right there with any refills needed), and the main course came nice and hot with great timing.
Kudos to our server, the pleasant greeter at the front desk, and the cooks! Well done. We will be back for sure!
